|Appearances||Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising and Advance Wars: Dual Strike|
|Specialty||Extra movement, fast CO gauge|
|Super CO power||Sidewinder|
First appearing in Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, he is ordered to take Yellow Comet. He is ranked higher than Flak and Lash, though is below Hawke. He has made great enemies with Sensei and Grit. He never appears in the Advance Wars: Dual Strike storyline, but he can be bought after you complete the game.
Adder tends to refer to himself as a tactical genius and often insults his foes and underlings. He only shows any amount of respect for Hawke and Sturm, both of whom are above him in the Black Hole army. Adder also has a habit of saying "heh heh heh" and making up pathetic excuses for losing battles, such as blaming the weather. Adder seems to really get along well with Koal, despite the two COs never meeting each other in the Advance Wars: Dual Strike campaign.
Sideslip - All of Adder's units gain +1 movement. In Dual Strike, all of his Units also gain 10% firepower and defense bonus.
Sidewinder - All of Adder's units gain +2 movement. In Dual Strike, all of his Units also gain 10% firepower and defense bonus.
Adder has Tag Breaks with the following COs:
- Koal, 110%, "Creepy Crawly" (1 star).
- Lash, 105% - Only Adder gets the extra 5%.
- Hawke, 105% - Only Adder gets the extra 5%.
- Flak, 105%
Adder's exceptionally small CO Power cost (only 2 stars) makes it easy to spam. When using Adder, you can trick the opponent psychologically and have them constantly playing it safe, since they have no idea whether you are going to use your CO Power immediately or wait to use your Super CO Power.
However, due to the lack of a day to day ability, Adder is generally considered one of the weaker COs in the series. Despite frequent access to his CO and Super CO Power, the lack of a firepower or defense boost means that he can struggle to effectively capitalize off the movement increases granted. Adder struggles to approach COs with increased firepower and especially increased defense.
Black Hole Rising
"The look of terror on your face... It's absolutely delicious!"
"Heh heh heh... I'm going to enjoy breaking you!"
"Heh heh heh... Can't a guy have a little fun!?"
"Heh heh heh... It only hurts for a moment."
"A battle with me is a greater honor than you deserve!"
"Heh heh heh... Kneel before Adder!"
"Heh heh heh... What did you expect?"
"Hee hee hee... This is gonna be good."
"I want a turn, too!"
"Hee hee. Your skills are laughable!"
"It's already too late for you!"
"Let me hear your last words!"
"Check out my new and improved powers!"
"Wriggle worm... wriggle!"
"My venom courses through your veins!"
Koal: "Heh heh heh... Other COs are soft..."
Adder: "Heh heh heh... Like cotton candy."
Koal: "Heh heh heh... Hold nothing back!"
Adder: "Heh he... Hmm. Odd. That is my motto, too."
Adder: "Heh heh heh... What a pair we make!"
Koal: "Heh heh heh... Like water and fish."
Adder: "Heh heh heh... All we have to do is win."
Koal: "Heh heh heh... I couldn't agree more."
- In AWDS it's unknown why only Adder gets 5% offence when tagging with Lash and Hawke
- Possibly it's due to error coding or the developers forget to add the bonus 5% to Lash and Hawke.
